Astonishingly, someone on the point of releasing a CD recently thought the MCPS/PRS registration fee was some sort of iniquitous tax to rip off poor, hard-done by musicians.

On the contrary, these organisations have an interest in performers in that they comprise part of the membership and they exist to protect the interests of all members and to collect and distribute royalties for them.

Another myth doing the rounds is that the royalties from a self-composed piece is greater than a Trad/Arr. It isn't. It's the same.
